  • The early founders of family therapy had backgrounds in psychoanalysis and social psychiatry, and later incorporated learning theory and behavior therapy into their work.
  • The movement received a boost in the early 1950s through the work of anthropologist Gregory Bateson and colleagues, who introduced ideas from cybernetics and general systems theory into social psychology and psychotherapy.
  • The Bateson Project emphasized feedback and homeostatic mechanisms in interactions and eschewed the traditional focus on individual psychology and historical factors.
  • The members of the Bateson Project had a particular interest in the possible psychosocial causes and treatment of schizophrenia, especially in terms of the "meaning" and "function" of signs and symptoms within the family system.

  • Intergenerational therapies by Murray Bowen, Ivan Boszormenyi-Nagy, James Framo, and Norman Paul dealt with the intergenerational transmission of health and dysfunction in families.
  • Psychodynamic family therapy, influenced by Nathan Ackerman's ideas and the British School of Object Relations, continued to develop through various groups that focused on individual psychology and the unconscious in the context of current relationships.
  • Overall, the history and theoretical frameworks of family therapy have been shaped by a diverse range of influences, theories, and approaches.
